The CAF super cup between CAF Champions league winners Esperance Tunis and Confederations cup winners Zamalek of Egypt has been postponed indefinitely.
The postponement of the Super Cup match between Esperance and Zamalek of Egypt is because of the late decision to award the Tunisian side the Champions League trophy.
Esperance were finally named winners of Champions League on Wednesday by the CAF disciplinary committee as opponents Wydad Casablanca were declared guilty of abandoning the second leg of the final in May.
The Super Cup match was originally scheduled to take place on the weekend of 16, 17 or 18 of August.
But with Zamalek starting their Champions League campaign from Sunday against their Somali counterpart Decadaha and the second-leg scheduled for 22 August, just four days after the Super Cup game, CAF has decided to postpone the game.
The decision to postpone the finals indefinitely also states that anew date for the match and the venue will be communicated in the coming days.
